Downtown views for the ’gram from your own private terraceSend This Listing To A Friend
Killer views, stellar location, and space for days. This three bed, two bath townhouse has everything you’re looking for and then some. Not only do you get all the privacy of a house without the maintenance, but you also get TWO outdoor areas, including those million-dollar downtown views across the Don Valley. The rooftop terrace has a gas BBQ hookup and room to eat, hang out or just take in the sunset over the CN Tower.
Inside, this townhome is exceptionally well maintained. The full bath on the 2nd floor has been fully reno’d. The home was professionally painted, and all the lighting has been replaced. It hits the little details out of the park, too, with custom blinds, California Closets in the primary bedroom, and built-in cabinets on the 3rd floor. You’ll also find a little tech for extra safety and comfort: a Nest Protect smoke/CO detector, Ecobee thermostat and ADT alarm system with an integrated doorbell.
The 3rd floor is the perfect Work from Home space – an entire floor with a walkout to the terrace (it keeps coming back to that glorious terrace). It could also be a third bedroom, home gym or second living room.
Plus, the location is hard to beat – close to downtown via car, TTC or bike, with lakeshore and the beach a short drive away, highway access around the corner and a short stroll to everything Queen East/Riverside/Leslieville and the rebirth of Gerrard and Broadview. Includes one underground parking space with bike rack.
5 Things We Love
- A real community feel, with friendly neighbours and a sense of belonging
- The convenience of location without the traffic and congestion of many similar townhouse complexes downtown
- Views of the city over the Don Valley from the rooftop terrace (complete with a BBQ gas line!)
- Separation of space – you could have a diner party on the main, a baby sleeping on the second and a partner working on the third, all at the same time
- Awesome and growing Queen East strip is just 5 minutes’ walk away
Riverside has always been cool (who remembers epic concerts at the Opera House? Or the original Real Jerk or Dangerous Dan’s?), but in recent years it’s grown up from gritty cool…to just cool. Craft breweries? Check. (Um…try a FEW of them) Groovy boutique hotel? Check. Kickass brick conversion lofts and sleek new mid-rise condos that don’t make you cry with boredom? Check. And (when they are back to normal), some downright legendary restaurants and bars, from Bonjour Brioche to HiLo to the Comrade. Riverside is Leslieville’s leather-jacketed neighbour, a little more badass and even one step closer to the core and the DVP – with all the awesome neighbours and sense of community you expect to find in the East End.
And it just keeps getting better…
